  • I have two compact hatchbacks. They both will fit four tires - MODERN tires with 225-section width, rather than those skinny 60's tires - standing up side by side. I don't have to fold any seats down.

    My wife's 2015 Corolla sedan will also fit four of the same size tires in its trunk, again without folding any seats down.

    This mid-size TLX will fit three and that's really good? Huh?

    @longtimelurker,

    The TLX is also available with AWD. Even though Edmunds' long termer is FWD, they use the same trunk dimensions whether the added bulk is present or not. For a car that also needs to accommodate the extra bulk of differentials, etc that trunk is pretty impressive. People always seem surprised that luxury cars have smaller trunks than FWD family sedans and compacts, but that's because they have driven rear wheels. Makes a massive difference.

    Our long-termer is AWD. Super Handling AWD in fact.

    You have a point there...but in my cars the tires fit standing up entirely behind the rear-axle line - right up against the rear bulkhead of the car where the latch is. This is right over top of where the spare is stored...I don't think the absence or presence of a differential or rear half-shafts would impact the space I'm talking about.
